Indoor Location Mergers and Acquisitions Report
Published: December 4, 2018 Content info:

Whether you are a start-up company dreaming of your own M&A, a major company looking to acquire a technology vendor, an investor analyzing company valuations, an analyst tracking acquisitions by major players, or anyone else wanting to understand M&A in the indoor location area, this is the report for you.

Twenty two indoor location related start-up companies have been acquired in recent years. Some of the acquirers have been technology companies, including mobile device makers, network makers and chip manufacturers. But others have been less cutting-edge, including lighting and electronics makers and system integrators. Why are such different companies all buying start-ups in the indoor location area?

This reports analyzes these acquisitions strategically:

  • What technology differentiation did each acquired company have?
  • Were they acquired for the sales and customers they had, a technology that filled a gap for their acquirer in the short term or their potential value in the long term?
  • How did their technology relate to the specific needs of their acquiring companies?

The report also examines the prices of nineteen of these acquisitions, some announced and some of which we estimate. While some of our estimates are speculative, they give a picture of the landscape of indoor location acquisition prices that has never before been collected. The prices range from low single digit to high double digit millions of dollars.

Based on all of the above, we give our predictions for indoor location related acquisitions in the upcoming years. Which segments will be in high demand? Which is likely to command the highest price? And which kind of company is most likely to be acquired by the largest multinationals?
